I'm not quite the stickler for pristine quality,this show sounds really good to my ear,people are very spoiled with what's become available in the last 20 years.No one could argue with your fondness for August-October,with September being possibly the finest month in the bands history,somewhat a function of there being 14 shows,but they produced 24 stellar versions of the big four Dark Star,Other One,Playin' and Bird Song.While November doesn't come close to matching that output it did produce 2 all-time top 10 versions of Playin',11/15 and 11/18 and 8 other top notch versions of the big four in the 10 shows we have available.I tend to favor December,there seemed to be a fierceness and sense of purpose I've never heard before or after,it all seemed to come together.
